Teradata Database on VMware offers four database license tiers depending on your use case. Each tier differs in scalability and performance. The Base, Advanced, and Enterprise Tiers can be used as an upgrade path from Teradata Express. This book is for these three tiers.
A free Developer tier is also available and can be used for evaluation purposes. Developer can be used for proof of concepts, development and testing, data validation, and as a sandbox for Teradata Database users.
